The gypsy rover came over the hill,
Down through the valley so shady.
He whistled and he sang 'till the greenwoods rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.

Ah-di-do, ah-di-do ah-dey,
Ah-di-do, ah-di dey-o,
He whistled and he sang 'till the green woods rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.

She left her father's castle gate,
She left her own true lover,
She left her servants and her estate,
To follow the Gypsy Rover.

Ah-di-do, ah-di-do ah-dey,
Ah-di-do, ah-di dey-o,
He whistled and he sang 'till the green woods rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.

Her father saddled his fastest steed,
Roamed the valley all over,
Sought his daughter at great speed,
And the whistling Gypsy Rover.

Ah-di-do, ah-di-do ah-dey,
Ah-di-do, ah-di dey-o,
He whistled and he sang 'till the green woods rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.

He came at last to a mansion fine,
Down by the river Calyde,
And there was music and there was wine
For the Gypsy and his lady.

Ah-di-do, ah-di-do ah-dey,
Ah-di-do, ah-di dey-o,
He whistled and he sang 'till the green woods rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.

"He's no gypsy, my father," she said,
"But lord of the freelands all over,
And I will stay 'till my dying day
With my whistling Gypsy Rover.

Ah-di-do, ah-di-do ah-dey,
Ah-di-do, ah-di dey-o,
He whistled and he sang 'till the green woods rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.
